to be a bigger and more difficult issue and it deserves more than 10 seconds, but particularly the attacks on u.s. corporations and intellectual property is the core problem. on some national dialogue i think it's a very interesting interesting subject and a great question. i think there's a lot that could be done in the investment area and relating to that in the ipr area. it's been more successful at the subnational level than the national level. governors and china want to invest more than their national governments want to encourage it. and, perhaps you can use leverage to improve icr performance at the regional level in china which is where the real problem lies oic real possibilities here. >> please join me in thanking this terrific panel.

that vacancy at the cia has also now touched the current top u.s. commanding general in afghanistan, whose successor for that job is due to have his confirmation hearings in washington tomorrow. well, today at his first post-re-election press conference, the president largely deflected questions about who he would be appointing to all the top jobs in the administration for his second term. he deflected those questions today with one notable exception. one notable exception that just about took the roof off that room today. did you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style hearings on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nomi

from his boss, defense secretary leon panetta, says allen will remain the commander of the allied and u.s. forces in afghanistan for the moment at least. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job at isaf in leading those forces. he certainly has my continued confidence to lead our forces and to continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold as a prudent measure until we determine what the facts are, and we will. >> allen could be in the final hours of his role as the nation's top military leader in afghanistan. the senate could confirm his successor as early as tomorrow. >>> now the intersection of that political scandal and personal tragedy. in just a couple of hours lawmakers begin closed-door hearings on the terrorist attack that killed the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other americans. the white house faces withering criticism over how it responded to security concerns before and how it handled the investigation after. david petraeus was expected to be a key witness before the sex sca

the biggest impact in the u.s.? >> one of the most powerful campaigns was the trayvon martin case. a 17-year-old african-american, killed in florida, tragically. two weeks after the incident, there was no media coverage of all. a private injustice. the parents start a petition, and then it goes viral. the importance is not just the individual acts of arresting his killer in prosecuting him, but the public. the result, the awareness of the tragic situation of young african-americans not being treated fairly in the justice system or the "stand your ground" laws, where you can almost impunitively shoot someone. that is some of the really exciting things we see. >> in trayvon martin's case, clearly there was an impact, but they were not waiting. they were in there pretty soon, on the case. what i want to ask you -- do you find a difference in the way that companies -- you have a lot of petitions aimed at companies that do specific things. obviously, some have had more political implications. is there a difference in response between business institutions and political institutions? >> politician
go to the u.s. senate and do exactly what john edwards did, and that will immediately start campaigning to be present. i believe our federal legislators are there to take care of federal business and our state legislatures, to be in our -- federal legislators ought to be down in our state, sending dollars to the state, and not sending them to the federal government to have federal legislators play a large game of twister to get the best position. host: bob cusack? guest: the caller mentioned term limits, and it was something mitt romney embraced, and the republicans on capitol hill have not embraced that, and neither have the democrats. it was talked about in the newt gingrich era, but both republicans and democrats are not fond of term limits. there is an argument against it, and that is when members get here, they promised to term- limit themselves, and when they get here they do not know how to legislate, they do not know where the bathrooms are, and just like anything they get experience and better at it, and they break the term-limit pledge. term limits will be discusse
see as the greatest challenge to the u.s. constitution in today's society? >> well, i did touch on an earlier. in terms of applying the constitution, i do think it is the technology. i mean, all of the dna is obvious for examples. you can be exonerated through dna evidence. far more often, it is used in the catch. is it a search and seizure with a tweezer full of skin and see if it matches something else. it is very difficult and there are difficult questions about that sort. we had a case with gps, you know, you could slap a gps on it and they have complete itinerary. it turned out that the guy was going in a direction typical of search and seizure. the new technology is a amazing. the technology is just amazing. it will be a good test to see how the framework they set up in the constitution can, as it has for more than 200 years, how it can be used in dealing with these new challenges. >> do you have a judicial philosophy that you apply? in interpreting these changes that could not have possibly been anticipated? >> i don't want the answer to be flippant, but the answer is no.
agency of energy, not us or -- they announced that in 2020 the u.s. is going to be the number one producer of oil in the world. for all of our troubles, the drag is us. >> shame on us for that. [laughter] [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> all right, we will be expecting that. >> this is not the first time that the work was ignored. >> they recommended getting rid of a lot of the tax credit -- and end the recommendations disappeared. [talking over each other] because i'm looking for my commission report. [laughter] >> he started going back in the president's desk. but simpson-bowles has had more staying power than a lot of commission reports. it is a guideline and it is the next iteration of simpson-bowles. it is clarification and bottoming. it is valuable. we are at a crux, a breaking point, frankly. with the future of this country. i think something has to be done in lame-duck section and i think that things will be done. and then we need to deal with the longer-term issue next year. the groundwork is laid. president, john boehner, harry reid, and senator mcc
years in the u.s. economy, we have added more than 5 million jobs in the private sector. so it's been growing at around 2 million a year. under the romney call, what he's calling for to get 12 million, that would have to go up to 3 million a year from 2 million. a lot of people think that regardless of what happens in washington, you would probably see something along the lines of those, of those kind of rates because the economy will move its way back to the trend growth of 3%, 3.5%. i think one, you have to hope that the macroeconomy goes with you. two, i think the policy can make a difference on the margin. and there's a difference of opinion between the two camps, romney's view that high income tax cuts and deregulation lead to growth. the obama view that it's investments in infrastructure, the work force, things of that nature that will lead to faster growth. and you know, you have to pick one or the other. >> and then quickly, yes or no, will voters take these numbers, these jobs numbers just days before election day, into the voting booth with them? >> probably not. i mean, cer
need to rethink this and it is hard to amend the u.s. constitution and the electoral college is in the u.s. constitution but there may be some things that can be done short of amending the constitution that can change that. we may have that result again. we have had it in the past. it will be interesting to see what the public reaction would be if you have a split decision here. that does not have to happen but it could. >> maybe you can give us your prediction as to the winner of the popular vote and by how much and then some of the key states. it can also mention colorado and wisconsin. where are the state going to go? >> i think if obama gets 310 electoral votes, it will not be that close in the electoral college. he does when ohio and he wins wisconsin. i do not know about virginia, colorado. i was in colorado this weekend, i have grandchildren in colorado. virginia is very close in the presidential race. i think obama wynns enough so he could crack 300 electoral votes. >> for jenna is close. one thing you got to remember last time is there was a huge margin for obama. ev
the vote on tuesday. >>> we're tracking the weather for election day. will it be stormy in parts of the u.s.? we're watching the news edge you decide 2012. we'll be right back. ight back. . >>> the subject hasn't been talked about much. can you thank the candidates themselves. >> it was always the case for the men running for president. religion and talkers tonight. >> reporter: they barely mention it now. before they became the nominees, the respect of the political parties, barack obama and mitt romney were more talkative about the ideas on religion. we're getting another taste to it now in two old videos that are trending on the internet. first off, mitt romney appeared on a television show in 2007 when he first ran for president. romney in this video, developed an emotional defense of his mormon faith over the discussion of abortion, taking issue with the host bringing up romney's faith. >> i don't like coming on the air and having you direct my church. >> i'm not going after you -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> that's right. >> i know. >> i'm not running into mormon and i don't -- i get
, they see ambivalence in the u.s. foreign policy and they don't see any particular reason to stop. we have tightened the sanctions, based on what was done in congress and the administration and those are starting to bite. but i wish we had gone to sanctions, these kines of very punishing sanctions a bit earlier, maybe we might see results by now. >> i am going to take a break but i am going to bring you back after that break because i would like to ask you about what happened in benghazi. some have suggested that history is repeating itself. 1979, to 2012, both years we saw an ambationz dormurderred. i would like to get your thoughts on that. quick commercial break and we'll be right back. ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. at unitedhealthcare insurance company, we understand that commitment. and always have. so does aarp, an organization serving the needs of americans 50 and over for generations. so it's no surprise millions have chosen an aarp medicare supplement insurance
, it will be a combination of guard and reserve and u.s. army reserve -- i mean, guard and reserve and u.s. army and active. there are characteristics that are important. people have been confused with what has been going on in the last five years and what we want in the future. in my mind, what happened in iraq and afghanistan is exactly how we designed it to happen. the active component responding initially was able to get things a establish, and then as we needed more depth, we were able to move into the national guard and reserve. that worked very well we are way more organized now in the army. there are some national guard and reserve units that have to be ready to deploy very quickly. those tend to be combat service support outfit that require much less trading capability. the guard and reserves issue is time, not money, but time. they only have so much time to sustain regiments. the characteristic of an active deployment is ready, and to maintain a level of readiness that they can respond to over a longer time frame. as i go through this, i have to balance that and decide what i need as they go forw

"it comes down to turnout." host: what do you think about the u.s. electoral system as we head into the final day? voters go to the polls tomorrow. in "u.s. a today," the two candidates made their pitch for why you should vote for them. barack obama, mitt romney, writing in to "usa today," sharing their opinions. president obama says -- "do not give up, we have had a rise in jobs and a rebound in growth." governor romney says -- "we need a new beginning." looking at the headline of "the wall street journal," it gives us an idea of where the candidates were over the weekend. you can see
